Have you ever thought: what am I going to eat for dinner tomorrow? –or- what will I be eating for lunch next Saturday? breakfast next Sunday? What will I order from the menu of a restaurant next time I go there? Isn’t it bizarre how our love for food makes us think about our upcoming meals over time?

At some point in your life you have probably met that girl who just can’t shut up about herself: how cool she is, how she only wears designer clothing, how she knows the right people, how clever she is and – of course – how rich she is. Chances are you have also met that guy – a colleague-who just can’t shut up about himself: who brags rights about a project he’s done – all by himself –, who boasts about staying later at work than his other colleagues, and who has the right business connections. The truth is that most probably their claims are far from reality…blah blah blah… Sounds familiar?
It took me years to make a decent Cacio e Pepe, one of Rome’s traditional pasta dishes (the others are Carbonara, Matriciana, and Gricia).

Making this post was a tough call: not only because I did not have daylight on my side for food photography, but mostly because I was about to experience (probably) the best dining experience of my life – an evening with Massimo Bottura’s cuisine at Eataly Roma. Having said that, imagine my biggest food photography challenge combined with the pressure of having to photograph Massimo Bottura’s remarkable dishes.
Having woken up late this morning, we decided to have a light breakfast in one of my favorite places in Rome – Settembrini. Over the last year, this has become of one hottest spots in Rome for its great food, service and atmosphere. It is important to highlight that Settembrini is open for breakfast, lunch, happy hour, dinner and after dinner!!!
Last Friday evening my husband insisted in taking me to a new restaurant he was raving about lately. He usually goes there for business lunch, so every time he came back home after work, he described me all the succulent dishes he ate. Honestly, being the foodie person I am, I was curious and had high expectations about this place.
